Letterbook, LB-029 

This letterbook covers the period April-May 1889. There is also one 
letter from June 1888. Most of the correspondence is by Edison and Alfred 
O. Tate. Many of the letters pertain to the manufacture and marketing of the 
phonograph and talking doll, Edison’s relations with the Edison Phonograph 
Toy Manufacturing Co., and his suit against Ezra T. Gilliland and John 
Tomlinson. Other correspondence relates to mining and ore milling, the 
phonoplex system, and the Edison exhibit at the Paris Exposition. There are 
also letters concerning the purchase of equipment and supplies for the West 
Orange laboratory and the exchange of financial notes between Edison and 
his various companies. The spine is labeled "From April 8, 1889 to May 21, 
1889 No II" and "LETTER BOOK H April 8 to May 21, 89." The book 
contains 499 numbered pages and an index. Pages 491-498 have been torn out 
of the book. Approximately 40 percent of the book has been filmed.

Letterbook, LB-030 

This letterbook covers the period May-June 1889. Most of the 
correspondence is by Edison and Alfred O. Tate. Many of the letters relate 
to the manufacture of the phonograph and talking doll and to the formation 
of phonograph sales agencies in the United States and abroad. Included are 
instructions for operating the phonograph and its battery and a draft 
agreement between Edison and the Edison Phonograph Toy Manufacturing 
Co. There are also letters pertaining to Edison’s personal and financial 
affairs, including the purchase of property for his companies and the 
maintenance of his home and grounds at Fort Myers, Florida. Other 
documents deal with Edison’s phonoplex system and his exhibit at the Paris 
Exposition, The book contains 500 numbered pages and an index. 
Approximately 40 percent of the book has been filmed.

Letterbook, LB-031 

This letterbook covers the period June-August 1889. Most of the 
correspondence is by Edison, Alfred O. Tate, and Samuel Insull. Many of the 
letters relate to the manufacture of the phonograph and talking doll and to the 
promotion of the phonograph in Europe and Asia. There is also 
correspondence dealing with the operations of the Edison Phonograph Works 
and with production problems at the Edison Lamp Co. Other letters pertain 
to mining and ore milling, Edison’s phonoplex system, and his exhibit at the 
Paris Exposition. Some of the documents concern Edison’s experimental work 
on electric lighting and the purchase of property in Silver Lake, NJ. Of 
particular interest are two long letters from Insull to Tate, which were written 
while Tate was in Europe. The book contains 507 numbered pages and an 
index. Approximately 40 percent of the book has been filmed.

Letterbook, LB-032 

This letterbook covers the period August-October 1889. Most of the 
correspondence is by Charles Batchelor, Thomas Maguire, John F. Randolph, 
and Alfred O. Tate. A few of the letters are by Edison. Many of the letters 
relate to the manufacture and marketing of the phonograph and talking doll 
and to music recordings made at the West Orange laboratory. Other letters 
pertain to mining and ore milling and to Edison’s phonoplex system. Some 
of the correspondence deals with the acquisition of property at Silver Lake, 
N. J. for the Edison Manufacturing Co. There are also letters to the firm of 
Dyer & Seely regarding patents on dynamos and other inventions. The book 
contains 500 numbered pages and an index. Approximately 20 percent of the 
book has been filmed.

Letterbook LB-033 

This letterbook covers the period October-November 1889, Most of the 
correspondence is by Edison and Alfred O. Tate. Included are letters relating 
to Edison’s exhibit at the Paris Exposition and to the development of a new 
battery for use with his phonoplex system. Some of the correspondence deals 
with the operations of the Edison Phonograph Toy Manufacturing Co. and the 
presentation of phonographs to Mexican President Porfirio Diaz and other 
foreign dignitaries. Other letters pertain to the erection of buildings for the 
Edison Manufacturing Co. at Silver Lake, N. J. There are also letters to the 
firm of Dyer & Seely regarding phonograph and electric light patents for 
Europe, Latin America, and Australia. Also included is correspondence 
concerning Edison’s stock transfers, his philanthropic contributions, and other 
financial matters. The book contains 500 numbered pages and an index. 
Approximately 50 percent of the book has been filmed.

I take pleasure in complyin; witi: your request for 
informition concerning tho grag hophone. 

This instrament is a modification of the phonograph. Apart. 
from details of derign, the only clain to originality and a only 
claim covering a wroad vrineipie,embodind in the patents on the 
machine, is that of cutting 9 record upon a revolving suriace 
such es wax by moans of a. knife or entting tool. It is eluimed 
by the pr binoters of the gsraphoplione that the iat hod of retordin; 
sound vibrations described and illustrated in the various jpatents 
both domestic and foreign on tho phonograph, anticipate only the 
process of indenting, or in otber’ words, a recording surface broken 
a . only by the effect of soum weaves wpon o diaphragm carrying 2 
stylus, as Contraedistinguishadt from 4 method by which a revolving: 
roc ordiny sivhaue ds continuously cut or yaouehed ‘by a Imife or 
eutt ing tool attached to the catice of a diaphragm, and the sound 

vaves recorded at the bottom of She furrow thus produced. As I

have stated, the Graphophone ‘peaple oliadm asiginality iin the latter 

method, and patents upon the seme Races! been issued to tin 

en here ani 
ina Low foreign countr jes , 

In the specifications of ny Srithsh metent of 1876; on the 

phonograph, and in the Laboratory reenras

which I aomivwted upon this cechize, ‘various nethods ol? recording

a% anticipation of the method whieh ‘the evaphophone people ¢laim 

as original in their instivment., ‘This is the fundumental patent 

on thdir machine, and it is worthless, The atthonties of the 

United States Patent Office wore unaware of the existence of ‘the 

Lambr i got arttitte and meghine whan they pronted tho claim, and 

Dre We Sa ~3~ 

fail wo to reviov ny British specifications. The remaining 
grap hophone patents cover the details of their imperfectly con~

simple a mech ine: as can possifyly be w ished for. By inspecting 
the phosographs you will chseave that I tave vemoved the kick- 
back altogether, The lever for Yaising tho ‘apectacle, whi ch, in 
the shepe of an angle rod is placed in front of the straight edge 
.on the michines which you use, has also been removed, aml the 
sequels is now raised by an orm which protrudes beneath the lip 
of the former; when this lever is thrown up the spectacle is 
reised so that the recorder or reproduccr point, as the case may 
be, is lifted off the phonogran ani the travelling nut thrown out 
of gon, am when lowered brinzs either of these poix s and ‘the 
travelling amt besk into positiom for recording or reproducing. 
I have cut the spectacle itself in two ani throvn cone side avay,

This shorter wire is attached +o the eos ae and moves with it, 
The other is stationary, It is, therefore, obvious that these —

This letterbook covers the period November-December 1889, Most of 
the correspondence is by Edison and Alfred O. Tate. The letters relate 
primarily to the manufacture and marketing of the phonograph and talking 
doll. There are also several items dealing with the technical and commercial 
development of the Edison-Lalande battery. Other documents pertain to 
mining and ore milling, mimeograph royalties, and the phonoplex system. 
Included also are letters to the firm of Dyer & Seely regarding electric light 
patents and other patent matters and correspondence about Edison exhibits at 
expositions in the United States and in Europe. The book contains 499 
numbered pages and an index. Approximately 30 percent of the book has 
been filmed,

Dear Sirt- 


T have hed a conversation with Mre Logue in regard -to 
tho use of.our new battery on you lines. He inforns me thet yon 

have 29 wires terminating in Philadelphia + 14 at B2nd and, Narliet 

. . 7 

Strects end 15 at Broad Ste,- und that yar desire to know if we 

can work all these out of one battorye 

_In reply I beg to say that we can work the whole of these on 
150 cells, so far as I can calculate from the data given ite by Mre 
Logue « I am going to ask you a few questions, sve won I re= 
geive your voply Iwill give you more accurate income tian ) 
: ‘ I understand that a riumbdr of these lines are City wireas

short wircs, and it is, therefore, desirable to operate then fram 

a independent battery. 

In remrd to tho balance of you wires rum ing ‘out of Philo~ 
delphia, I want to imowv (1) the mileage of the longest one of 
these, (2) its total emu egea: including relays, (3) the voltage 
desired, (4) munbor of wires, 

If you can conveniently do so, I would like you to let me 
haw a record as follows:-. 
OLTY drRoUrrS, 
(1) Mileage of oath wire 
(2) Total resistmee of exh wire, including relays. 
And the seme for "ut of tom* wires, 
The intemal resistance of one of ow cells is .only 202 - 

local actior’ is less than one-half of one per cont; there is abso~ 

lutely no cleaning to be done in connection with it; its resistance | 

does not rise #tt folie constant during its life, ani the effect 
is to ronder the battory as serviceable in wet weather as vin dry 
’  Pevhaps I can best illusti‘ate its capabilities by means of’ 

‘ figures ¢ The “éta which I uso may be incorrect, as Hr. Logue's 

initrmat ion wag: Apa sh*t, but pragtically this will, nole no dif. 

Vor gdee to my 2esent purposo, 

I hve agtumed ‘that you have nine short ality wires, leaving 
20 lon ones to be sroupal in on) battery; that you want an initial 

pressure of 128 volbd, aint that bh total resistance of tho. longest 


H, F, -d~ 

of these, including relays, is 3600 ohms; therefore, wien these 20 
wires are "evened wp" with ein tics to resistance, the total re- 
sietance of the outer circuit will bo 180 olms, 
To give you the desired voltage we wouln install say 150 of 
ow cells; we can neglect the conlsined. internal resistante of 

theso, 98 it would amoint to only 3 ohms, These cells have o caw 
pacity of 300 ampere: eee with one charge of solution; the oxide 
plates and zines have a aapacity of double the Ab.OV 8, 80 that tro 
charges of solution give 600 ampere hows, 

. On my asaamed data you vorld take 7/10 of an ampere out of 

the battery 24 hours daily, which with one charge, would give it a 

life of three weds; or six weds on two clnsges of so lut jon, In 
practice this tine will be extended I think we cam safely my, to 
one mdnth on ons charge, aim double that time on two, or even 
te tter than that e 

I mow with to call your attention to the nerits of this bat 
tery in wet weather. The internal resistance of the cinm it is 
3 ohms, and the external 180 ohms. Supposing as an extranet crsa|, 
AL Ee dad eure reduges the resi stance of your wires ten timers, 
bios ing y our aietnay circuit down to 18 ohma, you woul, -sttiih.

Replying to vow tes oF Qist instant, in regard to 

reTining. iron ores in Canada moans of my Magnetic Ore Separator, 

I beg to amewer your queries catesovieslly 2s follows? 




What would be tho approximate cout per ton, of the 
ore as ming? Prom the grov nl, for erushings md scpae 
reting the ivoh contained in it from the silica or 
other Yoreign rntter, by you’ proccss 2?" 

Actwel cost, G2 caibs per crude tons 

Hoy mich iton will you be compe Lled to waste in the 
Yocky naetter which you separete from the iron?" 

1/2 to 8 units of original ore. 

How high ea grade of ore can you prodded Pram an ore 
carrying, as mtisd, shy forty per cent. of mtollic 
iron?® : 

asl! - : 
Average G5 je by rayvining concentrates, cost 10 cents 
a ton, 68. % 
What would oo tiv di fferonso per ton in cost of prom 
ducing an ove ¢hnt Yorrld yield sixty per aont. and 
ore ylolding sixty-tlisht per conten 

Ton ecnts.-

To how low a grade of ore enn You use the whole 
product of tho ming, without throws ye wy portion 
of it into tho vaste heap, hy sortin: or separating 
it into secon. clase piles¢?t a 

It will pay t@ vse as low as 20 unit ore, 

i bac 

ores, that thirty per cent, of the oro mined is 
thrown into the waste heap, these heaps usually 
garrying abowt forty per cont., of iron, how nuch 
of the cost per ton for mining cdn yar save by pring 
ding up the whole amount mined and saving all tke 
ore contained in itee a 

Allowing, es ‘in usually the case in all MAgSNet Le 

Ordinarily, adining costs $00 per ton} if you take: 
everything dow to 20 unit, cost generally wild in: 
50 to 60 cents, a 

Oem you lover the phosphorous cont ai ned in neg ntic 
ores?l ‘ 

We can reduce the phoMhorous 75 ta 80 per cent. 

Will the fine ore which is obtained by your erushiin; 
and separating proaess be vorth as much per unit ‘02° 
iran, vlen delivered at the furnacos, as the Lake 
Superfor Bossomer ores containing on-equally high 
percertage of iron? 

Yes, 80 the i1on men say, and werth more if we po 
to 68 per cent, 

Galling tho mining of the Conadian megnatie ores Ono 
Dollar per ton, the Railway and Lake dreights no 
Dollar and sixty conts per ton, the Maby savent y~ 
five cents per ton, sevonty per cent. of the ores 
carrying fifty-five per emt. and thirty per cont 
carrying forty -per cant. Can you deliver this ora 
in Clevoland at as a low a price per unit of iron as 
the Lake Superior oreg can be delivered at same 
place, the Lake Supertor ores being sehject to a 
royalty of Pitty conts per ton and the Canedian 

ores being freo from royalty?" 

About tho same. Can on above assumption of costs 
deliver a 68 per cmt. ore at Ohevolend for $5 ver 
ton, sure, against a 65 per cent. ore from Lake 


STUNTH On wint terns will yar erect, at. your ovm expense,
